Gerald Counts Minor

West Point, 1970

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Bob Meyer on November 8, 2017:

I am very sad to hear this news of Jerry's death. When I was a West Point plebe, Jerry was a senior. He served as assistant coach to the undefeated plebe, class of '73 soccer team. He showed us the ropes, built our confidence and took great joy in our early success. Ten years later, I had the privilege of working alongside Jerry for a few years with Mobil Oil in Dallas, TX., before he returned to his true love, flying. I remember Jerry's smile, his big laugh and his joy of life. Rest in peace, my friend.
